Coding Grace is a not-for-profit organisation. We are a group of developers based in Ireland who love to code and do other geeky and not necessarily crafty activities. We provide female-friendly workshops and events in an environment for developers and aspiring developers mentored by majority female instructors. We aim to provide a support network for people from all backgrounds and hope our outreach will help bring those who are interested in code development together and learn from one another.
Happy New Year! We are delighted to kick-start 2019 with our first workshop of the year. Learn the basics of Python while having fun making a text-based adventure game. No game or coding experience required.
